Murad, Retinol Youth Renewal Collection

murad

Retinol has been used as an ingredient in cosmetics for approximately 40 years. First as a treatment against acne, to later extend its use in the prevention and treatment of wrinkles and age spots, once proven effective as a skin renewal.

How does it act? Penetrating the deep layers of the skin, thanks to its light molecular weight, and stimulating collagen and elastin. What makes it unbeatable is that it also improves the appearance of the outer layer of the skin. It benefits the cell renewal process, so dead skin goes fast and new, brighter skin layers appear, it also regulates the keratinization process to soften the complexion.

The past weeks I have been using two products from the Collagène Collection from Thalgo a French luxury marine cosmetic brand, Thalgo formulas are kind to skin and the environment: Do not contain parabens, mineral oils, propylene glycol, GMOs or ingredients of animal origin (Except beeswax and collagen) I think this is wonderful for having a healthy and safe skin care routine in a long basis and it was on the reasons I wanted to try the brand as my skin is sensitive and tends to react quite badly to nasty chemicals.

The anti-ageing treatment enriched with [20+1] plant extracts that uses a hydrolipidic and biomimetic double formula to stimulate the five vital functions: hydration, nutrition, oxygenation, regeneration and protection. This serum was born back in 1985 and as you might know some ingredients are only soluble in water, others only in oil. That’s when the founder of Clarins got the idea of offering the treatment in two separate bottles, for the customer to mix together at the time of use. Double Serum was born.

Sensitive Skin Care Routine with Eau Thermale Avène

BYp-IKaD4Ad

Sensitive skin is not a type of skin, but a condition, a condition that can affect all skin types.
The symptoms are tightness, itching, tingling, erythema (our face turns red), burning. Did you ever feel that? Or thought “this cream is bad” and you stop using the one you had open because it burns your face? In general it is not the cream’s fault but our skin that is sensitized. What things can damage the microbiome (the protective barrier) of the skin and leave it weak and sensitive? very abrasive products, exfoliate very often, clean our face with very strong soaps, do not use sunscreen. That’s why we suddenly notice that everything burns, bothers us and then we choose not to use anything.

Well weeks ago I tried a clay mask that practically destroyed my skin, I was full of pimples, itchy, burning and actually my skin was in pain, so had to change my regular skin care routine to recover for one more simple but with specific products, that’s when I tried a combination of 3 from Eau Thermale Avène.
